Continuous Epidural Anesthesia / Epidural Block
Epidural Anesthesia can be described in two definition as “Continuous Epudural Anesthesia” and “Single-shot Epidural Block”. Both operation aim to eliminate pain from cervical part thru lumbar part though, the phrase “Epirudal Anesthesia” commonly means “Continuous Epidural Anesthesia”.
■ Continuous Epidural Anesthesia
Insert catheter into epidural space between dura mater and yellow ligament and continuously inject anesthetic agent for analgesia. The specially designed LOR syringe (Loss Of Resistance) is commonly used to judge if the needle tip has surely reached the epidural space, while the well-experienced physician can judge just by their fingertip feelings.
■ Epidural Block
The analgesia operation commonly used at Pain Clinic, injecting analgesic into epidural space.Major usage is for heavy lower-back pain or postoperative pain control. Compared to the continuous anesthesia, this operation is given by single-shot injection.
■ Tuohy Needle
Tuohy Needle was developed by Dr. Edward B.Tuohy in 1945 for insertion of catheter during Epidural Anesthesia operation. Tuohy needle has its tip bent for smooth insertion of catheter into epidural space, so called Huber Point. Initial Tuohy Needle was very sharp and should have been dangerous.
■ Huber Point
Huber Needle was developed as a hypodermic Anesthesia needle by Dr. R. Huber, a dentist in Seattle. It looks like a Lancet-Point needle having its tip face bent upwards. This design of the tip is good for use with transfusion port, since it can avoid coring of tissue.
